Fat is a company that makes architecture and art (and all kinds of things in between). We are interested in making work that explores the experiences, contradictions and possibilities of the modern world. Charting a course that engages creatively with the choppy waters of commerce - finding tactics and solutions that are simultaneously conceptually interesting, culturally relevant, and aesthetically engaging. Most importantly we work in the culture bunker, rather than the ivory tower.
